As Sheffield Tigers clubhouse won the Sheffield CAMRA’s Club of the Year 2023 I decided to pop along to the clubhouse and meet up with Tim, their bar manager to discuss things beer and Tigers.
Sheffield Tigers are a local rugby club who play at Dore Moor and currently play in National League 2 North and their clubhouse is basically open when the teams play or train, usually Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and on Sundays.
The clubhouse is warm and welcoming with TVs for Sport and enough room to seat around 60 people with a bar area to the end of the clubhouse. Here they serve traditional Sheffield beers on Cask from Abbeydale brewery, namely “Moonshine” and “Daily Bread” coupled to a variety of keg beers, lagers, Cider and Guinness. There is also an array of various wines and spirits.
Tim was keen to express just how good the Cask beer is and how they have invested in new modern cellar technology to be able to serve a perfect pint, also making sure the staff are properly trained in pint pulling.
So, its easy to see why Tigers were nominated and on a match day the bar is usually full with people both enjoy rugby and a good pint of beer, and the ambience and atmosphere is friendly and usually buzzing.
Add to this that Tigers hold their own beer festival every August and you have a great combination. This year they are expecting around 40 Cask beers and around 10 Keg beers from in and around Sheffield for you to try in a very pleasant marquee setting. A few pictures from last year’s event are here…
We’re presenting their award at their beer festival on Friday 25 August, 7:30pm. All welcome. Buses 65, 271 and 272 pass the end of their drive or buses to Dore (81/82) are a short walk away.
